This is James King.
Some may call him a prophet, some may call him a wordsmith, some may call him a motherfucker. I call him a creative mentor.
Fact, he took my friend's v-card, they broke up... people sometimes don't fit, we get that and that's why we can still kick it, no hard feelings.
He taught me about the importance of a hoe-tation, helps me pick out outfits for my dates, and how to truly and deeply get in the mindset to follow my passion because PASSION is dead or lost or non-existent in so many people. It's not to be wasted.
There's a casual grace about him, every detail on point in style. He finds pleasure in words, I find pleasure in images and we share with each other how we see the world.
I'd met him for ten minutes before this photo was taken for Modern Om. I couldn't imagine a better human to rep these malas at their launch. Here we were, just two people meeting for a moment and a lifetime through the lens.
